LEDR Recycling set to open stationary CBI C&D recycling center

LEDR Recycling (Landfill-Environmental-Diversion-Reclamation) is scheduled to open a state-of-the-art indoor material recovery facility that will feature a customized CBI construction and demolition (C&D) recycling center. John Davis, President/Managing Partner of LEDR Recycling, opened the 35,000 square-foot facility close to St. Louis knowing the city’s metropolitan area continues to grow as the operating windows for regional landfills close.

CBI designed, manufactured and shipped the C&D recycling center out of its Newton, NH headquarters. Expected to start operating fulltime by April 2015, the system is expected to process over 50 tons of throughput an hour and will accept materials such as wood, concrete, drywall, plastic, metal, cardboard and aggregates. The facility will operate for 8-10 hours per day, 5-6 days a week. A specialized CBI Magnum Force 5400 Downswing Grinder will become part for the processing system by the end of this coming June.

Grinding It Out In the Land Clearing Business

Thomas McKellar hails from a business/marketing and land development background. Today, he is President and owner of Site Prep, a cutting-edge land clearing business specializing in pipeline right-of-ways (generally 50 miles and less) as well as general construction site clearing. He also runs Biomass Chippers.us, an in-woods chipping and grinding specialist company.

McKellar definitely considers himself to be, in part, a waste-wood/organic materials recycler. With Site Prep he has about eight years of what he calls big pipeline experience, clearing land on right-of-way construction jobs, and managing the resulting organic materials. For the majority of his time as owner of Site Prep, McKellar has used tracked mulchers for his stump grinding and land clearing work. In the fall of 2014, he purchased a CBI Magnum Force 6400T horizontal tracked grinder manufactured by Newton, New Hampshire-based Continental Biomass Industries. He is currently using it in place of multiple pieces of equipment, including his old stump grinders and his former chippers and horizontal grinders, which he has since sold. He says he has not looked back.

Custom grinders match demanding applications

One size does not fit all. That’s why Continental Biomass Industries (CBI) says they have been designing, engineering and custom-building biomass recovery systems to meet the specific needs of customers for over 25 years. The company manufactures both upswing- and downswing-style grinders. “Upswings” are generally higher speed for cleaner material with premium throughput, while “downswings” are generally lower speed with the ability to process a more contaminated waste stream and have the flexibility to accept multiple rotor options.

Introduced in 1991, CBI says their Grizzly Mill (bottom left) is the backbone of their Biomass Recovery Systems, and the first unit manufactured is still in service with over 70,000 hours.

Magnum Force 5800 grinder

The Magnum Force 5800 from CBI is a mid-sized upswing unit designed for contractors dealing with lower production needs or transportation restrictions. According to CBI, decreasing headaches from load restrictions and permitting was one of the primary design goals of the 5800. The unit’s offset helix rotor, anvil and screen designs and dimensions remain similar to the 6800 in order to retain its high levels of grinding performance. However, the 5800’s rotor width is decreased to produce a machine with a total width under 8 feet 6 inches (2.55 m), weighing 64,850 pounds.

The Magnum Force 5800 grinder is ideal for yard waste and demolition wood processors, as well as mulch yards that demand high-volume throughput and maximum reliability. The 5800 features a high lift upper roll for ease of maintenance; high torque, hydrostatic feed system; PT Tech hydraulic PTO; and a Caterpillar engine. High strength drum rotor and screen system are shear pin protected. Plus, the entire system is controlled by CBI’s IntelliGrind logic incorporating a variable infeed speed that automatically adjusts to engine load and an optional modem communications system that provides for real-time system diagnostics.
